Changes in Homestead Exemptions
The Town Council unanimously approved a property tax break for Flower Mound residents for the homestead exemptions to go in effect for the 2021-22 fiscal year from the current 2.5% to 5%. It pays to buy a residential property rather than rent. For example, under the current exemption, a resident in Flower Mound who owns a home valued at $300K pays property taxes on $292,500. Under the new 5% homestead exemptions a home valued at $300K will property owners would now pay property taxes on $285K.
Now is the time to learn about Economics. It's all about Supply & Demand! With low inventory, demand is high. Buyers currently have low mortgage rates and they are seeing prices increase.
